  5. Sweet Kymber,

    I sent you an e-mail.

    My blog has be Award Free for a while now.
    Thank you for the nomination, you're too kind.
    Sending hugs and love your way.
    Your Friend,

    1. sweet Sandy - i understand completely. but i just wanted you to know that your blog is one of my faves! xoxo

  6. Thanks for placing me in such wonderful company !


    1. Jane - i would only ever place you in such wonderful company! thanks for playing along! xoxo

  7. kymber - Thank you so much for the compliment you have paid me. I am honoured.

    However, I have been given the Liebster award twice before, and feel greedy in accepting it a third time.

    Please, my friend, could I ask you to redirect this amazing compliment to someone who has not had it bestowed on them yet?

    Bless you. And Thank You once again :)

    1. Dani - no worries! you are so very welcome and i think that your blog is one of the finest! especially since you are half-way around the world from me and most of our readers - your blog gives us a chance to learn about life and challenges that most of us would never encounter. i will leave the nomination as is - so that people who may not know of your blog can find you and learn about "treading softly upon the earth". but i thank you for acknowledging your award. you are so very welcome!

  8. Thanks, kymber. I appreciate the sentiment.

  9. Thanks Kymber! Sorry I did not log on sooner to see the post. Just been busy. Will get to the questions soon.
